. 23.8% is the raise that policymakers will see on capital gains. chris edwards joins me now. he is director for tax policy studies at the cato institute. i would like to show people what we're talking about. he gets confusing for people. we have a current tax rate, 15%. on january 1, the capital gains tax rate will jump to 23.8%. i talked to a lot of my friends and they say that's not a big dumb. what you say? >> it is a big jump. if you add state taxes on top of that, the united states will be up to 20%. our major trading partners, britain and europe and canada -- they are only 16%. so there is a very good reason why just about every industrial country has a really low capital gains tax rate. that's because policymakers just about everywhere know that low capital gains tax rates are crucial for a growth of economy and entrepreneurship and high-technology industries. gerri: so what if we compare favorably with a lot of developed countries out there -- what would be the practical effect? >> it will slow the flow of venture capital and investment for high-technology companies. if

to that point. when you talk about the modern media, and remember edward r. murrow in the harvest of shame, and he made a documentary saying look at what happened with the farm workers in this country, and it was the segregated people who said no to segregation and forced the major media to come in. media has always been part of the fight for social justice. this is nothing new. i think that we do have to link the stories, and one of the things that happens is that this horrible thing that happened in newtown, but people forget the hundreds of young people who are killed on the streets of chicago over the last five years, who are mostly african-american and mexican children. what happens in baltimore, 212 murders in a city of 600,000 and where both i and farria come from, andt is up acceptable, and we do have to bridge it for people wanting the guns and the gun control which we can do. if you study the history, you can study the roots off it and figure out the future. >> mitzi miller, one more question before we head off to commercial, if i'm a "jet" reader, and i see this cover, is this a
